simplifyMD, a company that specializes in improving physician income, reducing work hours and streamlining operations, announced recently that Siouxland Adult Medicine, located in Sioux City, Iowa, has celebrated their one year anniversary of going live with the Digital Chart Room™.

The four physicians of what is now Siouxland Adult Medicine were informed just weeks before the hospital with which it was associated decided to close the clinic where their patients were being seen. They immediately began the process of opening the new clinic, in which they knew they wanted to go paperless. Keeping operating costs low for the new clinic and ensuring there would not be a lag in patient care was integral to each of the partners.

"Although we were in a time crunch when we chose simplifyMD, the transition was still very smooth," explained Mark Carlson, M.D., a physician for Siouxland Adult Medicine. "I think simplifyMD has the best product I could have chosen for an EHR. No system is perfect, but with the simplifyMD, clinical care of patients is done well, we don't lose information, and it's easy to find and retrieve data."

In addition to the affordability of simplifyMD, Dr. Carlson and the staff at Siouxland Adult Medicine enjoy the ability to access their charts through any computer, even away from the clinic. The training for the new system was minimal, and the clinic started seeing patients the same week simplifyMD was implemented. According to Dr. Carlson, "Without simplifyMD, we would had to have had at least three people running around the office pulling charts and larger office space.”

“Not only were we able to help get Siouxland Adult Medicine up and running quickly, we were able to provide them with a low, fixed monthly price that required no debt and held no surprises,” remarked Matt Ethington, President of simplifyMD. "With our system, Dr. Carlson and his staff enjoy not only the financial rewards of an immediate return on investment but also the convenience and prestige of running a modern office.”
